Crazy Willy's Funhouse of Sound; not much good for anything else.

  • Summary: This card was a tremendous disappointment. After a Turtle Beach surround headset broke, I got some Astro A50's and picked one of these up to replace my onboard Realtek audio. I wanted it for the codecs, and so I could plug in an external surround speaker set later (at the time I was in an apartment)...

Excellent Hardware - TERRIBLE software

  • Excerpt: I had owned previously the D1 (PCI variant) of the DX for over 2 years, and it ran without any faults.

Wow

  • Excerpt: Best sound output I have ever heard. I normally use onboard sound, but since I broke my onboard sound I purchased this. Let me say, once you get a sound card you will never use onboard again.

  • Summary: I bought this card as part of a new system, but it refused to be recognized. RMA'd it, and got another, but same problem. RMA'd the second one and replaced it with an HT Omega Striker. XD (PS. NCIX RMA is great!)
  • Pros: Well, it didn't work for me, so: none.
  • Cons: It didn't work, and that's with two different cards., Requires additional power input.

  • Summary: Unfortunately i had issues with sound only coming from one channel. I returned it and got another the same but had the same issue. Contacted Asus support and did what they suggested but still no good. I really wanted this sound card to work.

  • Excerpt: Звучит хуже встроенной реалтек. Низов вообще нет, софт аляповатый, эквалайзер ни о чём, требует дополнительное питание, которое потом очень сложно вынуть (порезался, хотя руки из плеч, как будто специально так сделано). Да середина и верх чистая, наводок нет, но звучит неприятно.
  • Pros: нет достоинств
  • Cons: звук

Stark verbesserungswürdig...

Matrix110, geizhals.de

  • Summary: Also ich weiß ja nicht... Anscheinend war meine Soundkarte kaputt, wenn man hier die Bewertungen so ließt. Der Sound meiner Xonar war grässlich, total verfälscht, Bass war nahezu nicht vorhanden und Sachen wie das Upmixing sind nicht zu gebrauchen. Da hört sich selbst mein Onboard Sound besser an.

A éviter

  • Summary: Pas de DTS connect, juste du Dolby Digital plus. L'adaptateur de connectique SPDIF a cassé au bout d'un mois d'utilisation. La carte son s'est retrouvée à la benne ;)

  • Summary: Une carte son Asus, plébiscitée partout, pourquoi pas ? L'interface graphique est dépassée, mais j'ai surtout souffert de réglages pauvres et de cette vilaine impression d'être sur un control panel de carte son à pas cher. Asus a un gros effort à faire de ce côté.
